Essay and Answer Writing

Two Teachers

Two teachers walking by the road came across the mansion of the richest businessman in the country. One teacher said to the other, ‘If only I can get all the factories of this man along with all his wealth, I can earn more than him.’
‘How do you think you can do that,’ asked his fellow teacher.
‘Look, I shall make as much money as this gentleman is making from all his businesses. And then I shall also give couple of tuitions to add to my income,’ replied the beaming teacher.
Message: Fools consider themselves to be smarter than the wise ones.
